For the first time in three years Patagonia is using GORE-TEX in its technical clothing, with several new garments in its winter range. 2011 is very much a season of classic offerings from Patagonia - in addition to having Gore back in the house, there are some retro styles, the down sweater gets new relations, and the merino base layer line is totally revamped. The environmental impact is low, with all styles recyclable through Patagonia’s Common Threads Recycling Program, well over half of the collection made with environmentally conscious fabrics and 36% made with bluesign approved fabrics. First, the Gore programme: Patagonia is using the world’s best-known waterproof-breathable fabric in its alpine collection and ski/board line. Fall 2011 brings about the most cutting-edge, technical collection of Patagonia Alpine products to date.
Classic styles such as the Super Alpine Jacket and Super Pluma Jacket have been updated, now using GORE-TEX Pro Shell technology. Clever features include a patented Touch Point System for embedding all cordlocks and pressed pleat pockets that allow for full visibility to the ground. The new Triolet Jacket is engineered with GORE-TEX Performance Shell fabric, using the most durable nylon face fabrics available. The new Winter Sun Hoody provides windproof warmth by combining a lightweight WINDSTOPPER Insulated Shell exterior with 100g Primaloft Eco insulation.
Patagonia also delivers two new soft shell garments, built specifically on the needs of their athlete team. With naming inspired by Chouinard Equipment pitons and ice tools, the women’s Knifeblade Pullover and men’s Northwall Jacket are made with Polartec Power Shield Pro fabric. This fabric package allows for maximum breathability, great weather protection and incredible abrasion resistance.
